Start off your wedding theme before your nuptials even begin with the right invitations. This Antler Crest – Ecru – Featherpress Invitation is perfect for an antler theme because it’s so simple and naturally beautiful. An ecru background provides the perfect touch of off-white and at the top you’ll find your new initials surrounded by antlers for a unique crest.
For a nature-inspired cake, stick with a clean and straightforward base. The couple in our style board opted for a three-tiered white cake with textured stripes and dots alternating on each layer. On the top of their confection, they placed an arrangement of flowers for the perfect splash of color. But the real element that helps this cake stand out is the antlers. You would think antlers on a cake would look extremely bizarre and out of place, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that it blends in quite nicely. Consider spray painting the antlers with gold or silver to bring a bit of rustic glam to your dessert.
Nature provides some of the most beautiful wedding decor. And the best part about it? It’s free. Use slabs of wood as the base for your reception table centerpieces. Place arrangements of flowers in glass vases on top and surround the wood slabs with two antlers to create a focal point.
Fun photo shoot
After the ceremony, when you and your spouse are ready to take pictures, have a set of antlers that you two can play around with. They actually do make for some pretty adorable photos. This bride even incorporated antlers into her floral headband for a cute way to stick to the theme.
There is so much you can do with your bridal bouquet. You no longer have to just carry flowers down the aisle. Many brides are using fruit, feathers, buttons, gems and more for a way to help their arrangement stand out. The bride in our style board took a small antler and stuck it in with her orange, yellow and white blooms. Dress up the antler with gold or metallic spray paint, or wrap it with lace for a vintage vibe.
